Severe Weather Preparedness: Creating a disaster supplies kit

Spring and summer are peak tornado and flood season for much of the country, an enormous threat to family and home security. Recently, US Tornados published a monthly guide to peak tornado season in America.

Next month, suburbs entering their typical annual peak will include Atlanta, Houston, Raleigh, Wichita, and Oklahoma City. Regardless of where you live though, it’s important to be prepared for severe weather.

Your first step? Creating a disaster supplies kit.

Did you know flash flooding is the #1 weather-related killer in the US? Several factors contribute to flash floods, including rainfall intensity and duration. Flash floods can occur within a few minutes or a few hours.

Assemble a disaster supplies kit with items you may need in case of an evacuation. Store these items in a sturdy, easy-to-carry container, and keep important family documents in a waterproof container. Keep a smaller disaster supplies kit in the trunk of your car, too.
